Woodstock 50 has taken another body blow … Jay-Z and John Fogerty are pulling the plug on the festival.
The event’s supposed to go down in just 3 weeks, and this kind of news could cause a stampede.
It’s all kind of come full circle but not in the way Woodstock would have wanted — it was Fogerty, along with Common and festival founder Michael Lang, who announced back in March that Jay-Z would perform at Woodstock 50.
Jay-Z was the big get for W50. He was slated to close the 3-day festival, which has faced a devastating series of setbacks.
As we reported … the major blow came back in June when Watkins Glen International — an upstate NY racetrack where the event was supposed to go down — pulled the plug. There were major money issues as well that dogged the festival.
The event’s now being held at the Merriweather Post Pavilion … an outdoor amphitheater in Columbia, Maryland.
BTW … Fogerty — who performed at the OG Woodstock — will still perform that weekend — at an unconnected event in Bethel, NY, where he took the stage a half-century ago with Creedence.
